Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of our judging panel. Only writers, journalists, and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards is able to leverage the experience and expertise of an influential group of national opinion makers to determine award winners.

In our 6th annual program, we are excited to confirm the participation of the following 50 judges, including 29 judges returning from previous years’ judging panels, as well as several new additions to the group. For the press release announcing the final judging panel, please see here.
